This example demonstrates how to use numeric functions to perform computations in your recipe steps.

Functions:

ItemDescription
ADD Function Returns the value of summing the first argument and the second argument. Equivalent to the + operator.
MOD Function Returns the modulo value, which is the remainder of dividing the first argument by the second argument. Equivalent to the % operator.
NEGATE Function Returns the opposite of the value that is the first argument. Equivalent to the - operator placed in front of the argument.
SUBTRACT Function Returns the value of subtracting the second argument from the first argument. Equivalent to the - operator.
MULTIPLY Function Returns the value of multiplying the first argument by the second argument. Equivalent to the * operator.
DIVIDE Function Returns the value of dividing the first argument by the second argument. Equivalent to the / operator.
LCM Function Returns the least common multiple shared by the first and second arguments.
